					TTR Releases First Ever United Nations Standard Products and Services Codes
(UNSPSC) Taxability Matrix

The United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) system is a classification
made by the U.N. of every commodity bought and sold throughout the world. TTR has taken the
commodity list and provided an image for each commodity, a tax answer, a detailed explanation of
why a commodity is or is not subject to tax, and linked associated laws, regulations and rulings for
each commodity listed.

New York, NY, July 26, 2013 --(PR.com)-- TTR, the industry leader in providing accurate, current,
supported and easy to find sales and use tax answers, has just released the first ever UNSPSC Tax
Answers Matrix. Now, and for the first time, any professional can view the taxability of the commodity
codes listed in the UNSPSC across all U.S. states.

The United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) system is a classification made by
the U.N. of every commodity bought and sold throughout the world. TTR has taken the commodity list
and provided an image for each commodity, a tax answer, a detailed explanation of why a commodity is
or is not subject to tax, and linked associated laws, regulations and rulings for each commodity listed.

How did TTR do this?
TTR started with the list of commodities contained within the UNSPSC. TTR then researched how these
items are taxed across all states. TTR found images of each commodity in order to help subscribers more
readily identify what may be bought or sold. TTR then added detailed explanations for each commodity
across all states with links to full text laws, regulations and rulings.

However, in the process of researching these commodities, TTR found that sometimes the UNSPSC
commodity was not specific enough to accurately provide a tax answer. For example, there are 32 types
of juices listed in the UNSPSC. Yet, in many states, the taxability of juice is dependent upon the
percentage of juice in the beverage. TTR's solution was to provide tax answers for all tax-relevant
scenarios (based on the percentage of juice in each beverage) for all 32 types of juice.

What's next?
Providing tax answers for the UNSPSC commodities was just the first step. Further steps include keeping
all answers and citations up to date and working with the UN to recommend additional tax-relevant
commodity codes.

The UNSPSC TTR Tax Library represents just a fraction of TTR's content. TTR currently has thousands
of products and services covering over 5 million sales and use tax answers across over 20 industries in all
states.
